i'm trying to help an 8 year old friend get started in learning programming. i want to take over an old PCL box i've got lying around and install a newer version of PCL (the 2013 one - lol) and maybe even take him through the installation steps. He's already got a monitor, which is good 'cause i don't have any extra lying about.
He says he would like to be able to program some simple games he can show his friends and i'm also interested in staying with Open Source and Linux oriented. Uh, my only programming experience was way back when when i tried working with the programmable TI calculators and some VERY basic BASIC programming. As you might have calculated, that was some 30 years ago - sigh.
So, any comments/suggestions would be of great help.
Have a great evening!
